Cinnamon toast crunch granola - Daisybeet

Did you used to eat Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal when you were little? Or maybe you still eat it now! No judgement – I just made Ben a Cinnamon Toast Crunch cake for his birthday and it was wayyy too good to even describe.

Making that cake and munching on Cinnamon Toast Crunch reminded me of happy childhood times. I still love cinnamon flavor, and decided I needed to make a cinnamon packed granola recipe.

Why you’ll love this cinnamon toast crunch granola

  • Packed with cinnamon flavor. The star of this granola is one spice – cinnamon! It will make your home smell like Christmas morning as you bake it.
  • Healthier than the breakfast cereal. This granola is much lower in sugar and higher in fiber than Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. It’s made with whole grains and has healthy fats from cashews.
  • Tastes like a warm hug. Cinnamon is such a comforting and warming spice. You’ll feel as if you’re being wrapped in a hug when you take a bite of this granola.

How to make cinnamon toast crunch granola

  • Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  • Mix together wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
  • Pour wet into dry ingredients, and mix to combine well.
  • Press granola into a single layer on a lined baking sheet.
  • Bake until golden brown, and let cool before breaking into clusters.

Tips for making this recipe perfectly

  • Don’t mix the granola at all while it is baking. This way, you’ll end up with big clusters to eat.
  • Use old fashioned rolled oats (certified gluten free if needed). The texture of quick or steel cut oats is not ideal for granola recipes in general.
  • Keep an eye on the granola during the last few minutes of baking. It can turn from golden brown to burnt pretty quickly.

Mocha Latte Overnight Oats (Vegan, Gluten Free)

This decadent, chocolatey mocha latte overnight oats recipe is perfect for coffee lovers! It’s just like your favorite coffeehouse drink.

Mocha latte overnight oats - Daisybeet

But first, coffee. A morning cup of joe is a sacred ritual for many people. While I personally don’t drink coffee (I’m too sensitive to caffeine), I absolutely LOVE the taste and aroma. If I’m out at a cute coffeeshop, I’ll get a decaf latte or cappuccino to sip on. Pure bliss!

What brings coffee to the next level? Chocolate! When you add chocolate to a latte, you get a mocha latte. Chocolate goes with so many delicious flavors, but coffee certainly tops the list. (Ok, maybe it’s tied with peanut butter).

Healthier Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake (Gluten Free)

This apple cinnamon coffee cake is a better-for-you autumn treat! It’s gluten free, lower in sugar, and sure to please everyone.

Healthier apple cinnamon coffee cake - Daisybeet

I love apple based baked goods in the fall when apples are in season. There is nothing cozier than the smell of warm apples and cinnamon in the oven! Apple pie, apple crisp, apple cobbler…I’ll take them all!

This apple cinnamon coffee cake is a twist on classic coffee cake. The two are similar in their quick bread “cake” base and delicious streusel topping. But, this version is a little more unique!

Healthier apple cinnamon coffee cake - Daisybeet

First, there is lemon zest in the cake batter, which adds such a delicious and light flavor. Also, you’ll layer sliced apples underneath the cinnamon streusel topping. The apples get so soft and sweet when they bake! I used Mac apples from Yes! Apples – they came straight from the orchards in New York. This variety is perfectly sweet and tart, and great for baking.

Healthier apple cinnamon coffee cake - Daisybeet

What makes this apple cinnamon coffee cake healthier?

  • No butter. We replaced butter with applesauce and non-fat plain Greek style yogurt in this recipe. This significantly cuts back on the saturated fat content in this treat.
  • Gluten free. This recipe is perfectly safe for those with a gluten allergy or intolerance! Almond flour stands in for regular white flour. It provides more protein, healthy fats, and fiber than refined white flour. The healthy fats and fiber in almond flour prevent the sugars in your treat from being absorbed too quickly into the blood, so it is better for blood sugar levels.
  • Lower added sugar. This recipe calls for 3/4 cup of total added sugars: 1/2 cup of maple syrup in the cake, and 1/4 cup of brown sugar in the streusel topping. This is much less than the sugar content in traditional coffee cake recipes!
Layered apples - Daisybeet

How to make apple cinnamon coffee cake

  • Prepare cake batter and pour into a baking pan.
  • Thinly slice apples and layer them on top of the cake batter.
  • Prepare the streusel topping and sprinkle over the apples.
  • Bake for 45 minutes – 1 hour.

Coconut Chai Spiced Granola (Vegan, Gluten Free)

This coconut chai spiced granola is crazy flavorful and downright addicting. If you love chai tea, this recipe will blow your mind!

Tray of granola - Daisybeet

Granola is officially one of my favorite things to make myself. There are certain store bought brands that I love, but homemade definitely takes the cake.

This coconut chai spiced granola recipe is the third granola recipe I’ve shared on the blog, and I think it might take the cake. Ben proclaimed that this recipe is the best one yet without hesitation. It has tons of chai spiced flavor, thanks to cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, and cloves. Combined with rich coconut and caramel-y dates, I just can’t get enough.

Coconut chai spiced granola - Daisybeet

How to make coconut chai spiced granola

  • Mix oats, shredded coconut, slivered almonds, and spices together in a mixing bowl.
  • Mix together coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
  • Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir to combine.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes.
  • Let granola cool completely to harden, then use your hands to break into pieces.
  • Toss in chopped dates with the cooked granola.
Coconut chai spiced granola - Daisybeet

Tips for making this coconut chai spiced granola

  • Use old fashioned rolled oats. Quick and steel cut oats do not provide the right texture for granola, so make sure you are using old fashioned rolled oats.
  • Bake low and slow. We bake this granola at a lower temperature (325 degrees F) to prevent burning while it bakes for ~30 minutes.
  • Don’t mix the granola while it is baking. Spread the granola into one large “sheet” and don’t mix it! Baking at a lower temperature prevents burning, and by not mixing the granola, it allows us to have those giant clusters.
  • Let granola cool completely before breaking into clusters. The granola will harden as it sits and cools, so wait until it is room temperature to break it up into clusters.
  • Store in a wide, shallow airtight container. Carefully layer the big granola clusters in a wide, shallow container instead of a tall, narrow one to maintain the structure.

Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal (Vegan, Gluten Free)

This heavenly carrot cake baked oatmeal is such a treat for a crisp fall morning! It’s full of warming spices, walnuts, and golden raisins.

Carrot cake baked oatmeal - Daisybeet

Carrot cake is definitely my all time favorite cake. I love the chewy texture and warming flavors – especially when it’s slathered in cream cheese frosting! In fact, my very first birthday cake was a carrot cake. I think that’s where my love blossomed.

This carrot cake baked oatmeal recipe is an instant hit in my house. It’s been a bit cooler in Boston this week, so this has been the coziest breakfast. It tastes great warm or cold, but I love heating it up in the morning before eating.

Carrot cake baked oatmeal - Daisybeet

How to make carrot cake baked oatmeal

You just need one bowl to mix all the ingredients before pouring it into a baking dish! This recipe could’t be easier.

  • Make a flax egg in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add almond milk, maple syrup, lemon zest, coconut oil, and apple sauce to the bowl.
  • Mix in grated carrot, oats, walnuts, raisins, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt.
  • Pour baked oatmeal batter into a baking dish.
  • Bake for 45 minutes – 1 hour.
  • Slice and serve!
Carrot cake baked oatmeal ingredients - Daisybeet

Tips for making carrot cake baked oatmeal

  • Grate carrots very finely. Use the smallest hole on your grater for this recipe. I actually used a microplane to grate my carrots.
  • Use old fashioned rolled oats. Old fashioned oats provide better structure than quick oats in baked oatmeal, without being too chewy or dense.
  • Don’t over bake. The carrots make this baked oatmeal super moist, so you don’t want to remove moisture by over baking. The edges will be only slightly brown, and the center will be slightly squishy when it is done.

Peaches and Cream Overnight Oatmeal (Vegan, Gluten Free)

This overnight oatmeal recipe is super thick, creamy, and full of fresh peach flavor. You just need 10 minutes to make this delicious breakfast!

Peaches and cream overnight oatmeal - Daisybeet

I’m soaking up every last bit of summer while I can, including my favorite summer produce. Fresh peaches are so amazing this time of year! These overnight oats are basically peach pie in a jar.

The best part of this overnight oatmeal recipe is you can have it all year round! The peach puree is made from frozen peaches, and you could easily sub the fresh peach for defrosted frozen ones. Frozen produce is actually super nutrient-rich! Fruits and vegetables are frozen at peak ripeness, and the freezing process preserves those vitamins and minerals.

Peaches and cream overnight oatmeal - Daisybeet

Steps to make peaches and cream overnight oatmeal

First, you’ll combine the dry ingredients + fresh peach in a glass container or Tupperware.

Dry ingredients for peaches and cream overnight oatmeal - Daisybeet

Next, add wet ingredients and stir well to combine. Cover, and place this in the fridge overnight.

Wet ingredients peaches and cream overnight oatmeal - Daisybeet

While the overnight oatmeal sets in the fridge, make some peach puree in your blender. You can store this in a separate container in the fridge.

In the morning, portion out the overnight oats into 3 bowls or containers. Top with peach puree + chopped fresh peach and shredded coconut, if desired.

Why you should start making overnight oatmeal

Overnight oats have become one of my absolute favorite breakfasts! As a Registered Dietitian, they check off all the boxes when it comes to healthy eating.

  • Nutritious and filling. Overnight oats are packed with nutrients, including fiber. The fiber from the oatmeal + chia seeds is incredibly filling, because fiber swells in our stomach and slows down digestion. Each serving of this recipe has over 6 grams of fiber, which is 25% of the daily recommendation for women!
  • Easy and foolproof to make. Overnight oats hardly need a recipe, because they are so easy to prepare. Just mix oats, chia seeds, your favorite milk, and other sweeteners/fruits/flavorings, and pop it in the fridge! Once you have the proper dry to wet ingredient ratio down, the possibilities are endless.
  • Totally customizable. Overnight oatmeal is incredibly easy to customize based on what flavors you love. My personal favorite flavors include cinnamon, peanut butter, chocolate, or fresh berries. Make a simple base, and add different flavorings for each day of the week to keep it interesting!
  • Perfect for busy schedules. I am a big supporter of eating a healthy breakfast to start your day. If you’re super busy, you might not have time to sit down for a meal before work. Overnight oats are perfect to grab and go in the morning, so you can eat it on the train or at your desk!

Healthy Five-Minute Bircher Muesli Recipe (Gluten Free)

Bircher Muesli: The Original Overnight Oatmeal

Is it just me, or is overnight oatmeal the best thing since sliced bread? It tastes amazing, is filled with nourishing ingredients, and literally takes five minutes to prepare. If you’re a busy person (aka everyone these days) overnight oatmeal is the perfect grab-and-go healthy breakfast option.

Bircher Muesli is the OG Overnight Oatmeal recipe. It was developed by a Swiss physician, Maxamilian Bircher-Brenner, for his patients. The original recipe calls for grated apple, lemon juice, and raw hazelnuts, and oats soaked overnight in water.

How to Make Bircher Muesli

I put a bit of a modern twist on my version of this recipe. It includes chia seeds, yogurt, and cinnamon, while still highlighting the refreshing green apple and lemon flavors.

  • In a glass jar or Tupperware, combine oats, chia seeds, cinnamon, and shredded green apple.
Bircher Muesli Ingredients
  • Add yogurt, almond milk, maple syrup, and lemon juice, and stir everything together until combined.
Bircher Muesli Mixed
  • Cover the container, set it in the fridge overnight, and you’ve got the creamiest, dreamiest breakfast waiting for you in the morning!

Why You’ll Love this Bircher Muesli Recipe

  • It’s so easy. No cooking required! Just mix together all your ingredients and let the fridge work its magic.
  • Simple, whole food ingredients.  All you need are eight ingredients for this recipe, and you probably have most of them in your kitchen right now. This bircher muesli is sweetened with just 2 tbsp of maple syrup, so there is no refined sugar! Eating whole food ingredients make us feel good and give us lasting energy for the day.
  • Easily customizable. While the original Bircher muesli recipe calls for shredded green apples, feel free to mix up the fruit you use in your version. Fresh berries or peaches would taste amazing in the summertime!
  • Grab-and-go meal. If you have a busy morning schedule, you can still have time for a healthy breakfast by preparing this recipe the night before!
